MONTGOMERY, WV -

West Virginia University Institute of Technology has announced its 2012 Alumni of the Year: Scott Glenn from the College of Business, Humanities and Social Sciences and Gene Morgan from the Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering and Sciences.

Glenn, a native of Pottstown, Pa., earned his Regents Bachelor of Arts degree from WVU Tech in 1999. He also has a master's degree in business administration and a doctorate degree in education. 

During his years at Tech, Glenn was a member of the Golden Bears football team and holds the university record as Tech's all-time leading rusher. He was inducted into the Tech Hall of Fame in 2009. He has also served in the Marine Corps. 

He also is an author. His most recent book entitled "The Triangle Plan: A Guide to a Successful Life Derived from Personal Experience" was published in 2011, with proceeds being donated to WVU Tech Athletics.

A native of West Virginia, Morgan is a 1991 graduate of Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering. Upon graduation he joined Westinghouse Electric's power generator service division as a field service engineer.

He has been the co-recipient of two U.S. patents, both of which were developed as service solutions to address consumer needs. He is now the director of field service marketing at Siemens Energy Inc. in Orlando, Fla.
